Motherhood in the Astral Chart
When it comes to maternity in the astral map, a number of aspects need to be evaluated. In this sense, the 5th House of the astral map, known as the children's house, is undoubtedly one of the most important.
That's because House 5 is the house of creations, of everything we have as an extension of ourselves. It is a house of Fire, an element that speaks about identity — about what I identify as mine, about what is born of me, which is an extension of me and which brings me pride, pleasure, and joy.
The 5th House also marks the beginning of a new cycle of identity - which is totally related to the woman's transformation into a mother.
I like to say that the 5th house is the house of creation and that our children are a kind of extension of ourselves. We like and are proud to see our genetic and personality traits reflected in another being.
The sign that is in House 5 of our Birth chart shows how we act towards our children, what are their characteristics, what they bring us from learning, and how we raise them. It also speaks volumes about our inner child, about our ability to love and have fun in the process.
Therefore, to analyze and interpret the 5th house, we need to look at it from different perspectives:
- the sign the 5th house is in;
- if there is any planet in the 5th house in your birth chart;
- if there is any planet transiting your 5th house at the current time.
In general, the planets in the 5th house are archetypes or symbols of activities that are related to motherhood.

In addition, motherhood brings a lot of desire to study and learn about the world - so much so that it can even generate mental fatigue.

Motherhood can, therefore, serve as a moment of connection with oneself, to find oneself and welcome oneself.
Concern, dramas, willingness to care, and being close are also characteristic points. Your children tend to be sensitive, affective, unstable, and introspective, but also very instinctive and intuitive.
5th house in Leo or Sun in 5th house
People with a 5th house in Leo or Sun in the 5th house lend all the vibration and lighting of the star to motherhood. They tend to be positive, cheerful, creative, and fun-loving mothers. It is the mother who plays, has fun, does sports, and loves leisure time with her children. After the birth of the child, she may feel more aligned with her mission.
This is because the woman with this placement or transit in the astral map sees motherhood as a time to express all her authenticity and connect with her essence. They are protective and dedicated mothers who want to raise their children by motivating them and encouraging creativity and artistic expression.
The 5th house in Leo or Sun in the 5th house can bring some challenges in motherhood, such as a tendency to be a bit authoritarian or domineering. These mothers can be very demanding of their children and have a hard time dealing with imperfection or failure. Also, as they are very proud, they can have difficulty asking for help or recognizing when they are wrong.
5th House in Scorpio or Pluto in the 5th House
Those with the 5th house in Scorpio or Pluto in the 5th house tend to see their children as a great source of transformation, making it possible to overcome crises and heal traumas. This is because, in a way, motherhood brings contact with death — or dying to be reborn — in addition to great willpower to change.
The person here will have to learn to deal with domination, control, addictions, and the manipulative tendency. This experience will bring you an encounter with your own shadow in order to bring about great changes to see your own light. It transforms when it creates a being and educates it.
A Pluto transit is extremely long, so it needs to be analyzed in a deeper way, such as when it aspects other planets in this Birth Chart.
5th House in Sagittarius or Jupiter in the 5th House
People with the 5th house in Sagittarius or Jupiter in the 5th house may find motherhood daunting at first. It is as if they feel a great limitation on their mental and geographical freedom. This feeling may disappear over time. Motherhood, therefore, can be seen as a time to grow spiritually.
These are women who are generally very enthusiastic about their children, who like to encourage them to explore the world and express themselves freely. They are also very open and tolerant, allowing their children to be who they are, always stimulating their intellectual curiosity.
There may be some difficulty in setting clear boundaries with children, resulting in behavioral and emotional problems.
It's also worth scoring Jupiter is the symbol of expansion. Those with Jupiter in the 5th House have more than one child or more than one pregnancy. In addition, a transit of Jupiter in this house can also indicate the year in which a pregnancy can take place.
5th House in Capricorn or Saturn in the 5th House
Saturn is the planet that "lends" its qualities to the sign of Capricorn. Therefore, those who have Saturn in the 5th House or 5th House in Capricorn may feel a certain fear of motherhood. Often, women with these points in the birth chart prefer to become mothers when everything is resolved in their life, especially professionally. This is because they may feel that having a child hinders their career.
Saturn is characterized by restriction, structure, demand, and discipline. If a woman with this placement becomes pregnant in her youth, she may feel more insecure in the face of obstacles — which, it is worth pointing out, will be source of great learning.
When the 5th house of the birth chart is positioned in Capricorn, motherhood is seen as a serious responsibility and an opportunity to build a solid foundation for the future of children. They are usually mothers who are very focused on the future and financial security of their children. They encourage independence and autonomy from an early age, encouraging hard work and preparing for the future. These mothers are also usually very responsible and organized, creating a clear routine and setting appropriate boundaries.
The main challenges may be related to excessive rigidity and the difficulty in balancing the demands of motherhood with other responsibilities.
It is worth pointing out that a transit of Saturn in the 5th House of any birth chart can represent a period of difficulty in getting pregnant or a pregnancy that brings insecurity.
5th House in Aquarius or Uranus in the 5th House
Uranus in the 5th or 5th House in Aquarius can indicate an unexpected pregnancy, something that was not foreseen or planned. On the other hand, motherhood can bring spiritual liberation, a sense of collective, mental agitation, expansion of consciousness, and major changes in this woman's life.
The woman who has these points on her birth chart, when she thinks about motherhood, thinks about studying hard, doing things differently, and making a difference in the creation of this new human being. She is the type of mother who worries about the social and environmental impact that this child will bring, therefore, she takes more conscious actions, which include the way of educating and dressing the child.
A transit of Uranus in the 5th house (which lasts about 7 years) can represent an unexpected pregnancy or scares with children. Also, it can indicate the adoption of a child or simply the decision not to want to have children or to abandon them.
5th House in Pisces or Neptune in the 5th House
When Neptune is placed in the 5th house - or when the 5th house is in Pisces - motherhood can be seen as a deeply spiritual and creative experience. They are emotional and empathetic mothers with their children, capable of creating a welcoming and loving environment.
For people who have the birth chart with the 5th house in Pisces or Neptune in the 5th house, a child can also indicate disappointment, as the woman can be disappointed with reality and or feel that she sacrifices too much - the result of a certain nebulosity or confusion about your dreams and expectations.
The mother needs to have faith, forgive, and accept motherhood as it is, with its pains and delights. It won't always be a sea of roses, but it's possible to flow and connect with your child.
A transit of Neptune lasts about 12 years and, when it passes through the 5th house, care must be taken with big decisions. It can indicate greater mother and child connection, sensitivity, and intuition. A silent pregnancy can also happen, in which the woman does not even notice the pregnancy or the exams do not show it.
Astral Chart and fertility
Another aspect related to motherhood that can be observed and analyzed in the birth chart is related to fertility. This is because, through it, it is possible to find out which are the most favorable periods to get pregnant.
There are indications of greater fertility when Jupiter transits the Natal Moon or the 5th house, as well as Jupiter or the Moon in the 5th house in the Solar Return.
Saturn's transits over the Moon or the 5th house can make things difficult. This does not mean, of course, that pregnancy cannot occur during these periods, but that it may require more effort.
